SINGLE QUEEN BULLET KILLS CAMEROON
Zambia claimed pole position in Group B at the 2018 COSAFA Women’s Championship after a 1-0 victory over Central African guest nation Cameroon at the Wolfson Stadium in Nelson Mandela Bay on Saturday.
Lushomo Mweemba scored the only goal of the game with an excellent free-kick, with the match something of a stop-start affair with a high number of injuries.
It means Zambia have six points from their two games so far and need just a point in their final game against Mozambique on Tuesday to secure top-spot and advance to the semifinals.
Cameroon will believe they can also qualify as the best second-place finisher, especially with their healthy goal-difference built up in an 8-1 success over the Mozambicans in their opener.
Both of these sides have qualified for the African Women’s Championship in Ghana in November, so this match gave them plenty of insight into the quality of that field.
Mozambique kept their slim semifinal hopes alive with a 2-1 victory over Lesotho in the opening game of the day.
